REF 2021 Impact Case Study: Impact arising from advances in X-ray computed tomography for the bioengineering sector

  • Gianluca Tozzi (Participant)


Description of impact

Significant commercial impacts have been achieved, including substantial economic gains, new product creation, technology improvements, commercial visibility, job creation and new medical insights based on groundbreaking research undertaken by the University of Portsmouth (UoP) Zeiss Global Centre (ZGC) in X-ray computed tomography (XCT) for bioengineering.
This multidisciplinary research has pushed the boundaries of lab-based 3D X-ray microscopy and was conducted in close collaboration with international industry partners operating in bioengineering (Biotrics, GSK), imaging (Zeiss, Thermofisher Scientific, LaVision) as well as UK National Facilities (Diamond Light Source) and healthcare professionals (consultant orthopaedic surgeons at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, London).
